HCMC to set up population database

Chi Thinh

HCMC – HCMC will be the first in the country to build a population database which will be used for a smart city development project in the 2017-2020 period with a vision to 2030.

From next month, the city will start collecting data on 10 million residents including temporary ones as part of the Ministry of Public Security’s plan to build a national population database. Data on administrative procedures, land and enterprises will be collected as well.

The ministry is working on a project to create the national residency database under the Government’s Decision 896 approving a plan to simplify administrative procedures, citizenship documents and residence management database in the 2013-2020 period.

HCMC residents will need to provide information such as full name, date of birth, gender, place of birth, ethnic group, nationality, marital status, place of residence, ID number and blood type. Blood type is a new addition to population management.

Multiple State agencies and ministries are currently responsible for residency management, so residents must have various kinds of document such as birth certificate, marriage certificate, family registration book, health insurance card, ID card, passport, social insurance book and driving license.

Personal information contained in these documents often overlaps but when it comes to administrative procedures, residents cannot use the documents interchangeably, meaning they must use as exact documents as required. Therefore, the forthcoming database will help address this shortcoming.
